I will explain the procedure up to installation and startup using Eclipse 4.7 Oxygen. (If you use Eclipse with different versions, the screen capture diagram may be different, please change according to your Eclipse.)

This page explains the procedure for installing Eclipse on Windows OS.

Please check beforehand that Java (JDK) has been installed on target machine.If you do not yet, please install from Java installation.

Also prepare a text editor other than Notepad.This page uses TeraPad.

Get "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" from Eclipse ( download site.

(When used on Windows, it differs depending on whether the target machine's Windows is 32 Bit version or 64 Bit version.Please download the one suitable for your target machine.)

Figure 3 File obtained by download

Installation of Eclipse is terminated by expanding the acquired compressed file. Figure 4 shows an example of expanding compressed files with the standard function of Windows OS.

Figure 4 Expanding the Eclipse file is for the folder "eclipse" which expanded EclipseOverwriteto hold.
In Figure 5, the expansion destination is "eclipse" in the folder shown in Figure 4.

Figure 5 Unpacking the file

Open the expanded eclipse folder.
Edit the configuration file called eclipse.ini.Open the file using a text editor other than Notepad.

Figure 6 Editing eclipse.ini

Increase memory specification from standard 512 Mbytes.Here we have 1280 Mbytes.

Depending on the PC environment, 1280 Mbytes of memory can not be secured, and eclipse startup may fail.
If eclipse does not start up, try reducing the memory size to 1024 Mbytes.

In the last line of this file, add the following settings.

Create a shortcut icon for eclipse.exe and place it on the desktop. Start with Eclipse with this shortcut icon.
